Poland has a serious shortage of weapons after its aid efforts to Ukraine

The weaponry of the Polish army has been depleted as a result of efforts to assist Ukraine.

On June 13, Polish President Andrzej Duda told army generals that the country’s armament is getting depleted as a result of military aid to Ukraine, and that replacing them will cost a lot of money. As a result, President Duda has urged Western partners to strengthen their support in order to compensate for the loss of armaments.

“We expect that the gaps in our arsenals will also be filled within the framework of the allies’ support systems,” Poland’s president added. He also stated that Poland is the largest provider of heavy weapons to President Volodymyr Zelensky’s regime, including hundreds of tanks, artillery, and other military hardware.

Mr. Duda further stated that Warsaw is providing hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition, as well as drones and anti-aircraft missile launchers, to Kiev. Since the Russian military invasion in Ukraine, he stated that the Polish government has rapidly responded to the demands of neighboring Ukraine on the battlefield.

During the crisis between Russia and Ukraine, Poland was regarded as one of President Volodymyr Zelensky’s closest European friends. Warsaw delivered a variety of armaments to Kiev, including T-72 tanks, Gozdzik and Krab self-propelled howitzers, anti-aircraft missiles, anti-tank weapons, drones, and Grad rocket launchers.

Not only does Poland give aid, but it also serves as a training ground for Western experts in the use of new weapons for the Ukrainian army. Warsaw also serves as a stopover point for Western armaments destined for Ukraine.
